By Gabriel Udeh, Kaduna
Despite directive by Kaduna state government that only civil servants who collect COVID-19 Vaccine would be paid salary, some state government staffs have rejected the move, and boasted that “over their dead body”, they’ll not take the jabs.
Most of the civil servants who spoke to Saharareporters under anonymity said they preferred their lives more than Money.
“My life is more important to me than money, said a teacher who gave his only one name as Richard. Others also had this to said “I cannot be force to take the vaccine against my wish. As long as I’m alive, I’ll get another work and money to feed”, others said.
Three of those who spokes to our reporter however threatened to dragged government to court if it refused to pay them their salary for not taken COVID-19 Vaccine, adding that they cannot be forced on it among others.
Recalled that a civil servant Hamatu Tango, working in account session of Gwanna Awan General hospital in kaduna South said she suffered dizziness immediately and vomited blood many times through her mouth and nose two days after taken the vaccine based on the government instructions, and was hospitalized two places.
According to Mrs Tanko she was compelled to take the vaccine at Kaduna South local government Secretariat because of fear that only civil servants that showed paper evidence would be ticked for salary, adding that she took it because she has nobody to help her take care of her and old mother.
Efforts made to clarify the matter from the media side of Governors el-rufai failed as Mr Muyiwa Adekeye could not respond.
